Ch Ch Ch Chia

Jason keeps asking for a dog, and since I plan on raising children and not puppies, I don't really see it happening in the near future. To ease the pain, for Jason's birthday, I got him a chia puppy! He's quiet, never barks or yaps, he can be an inside or outside dog, doesn't make messes, and still you can love him and watch him grow! Good thing you can keep reusing these chias, because our first attempt wasn't perfect. I guess we packed on the seeds too heavy on his back; the sprouts have been having a hard time growing there. He looks like he's experiencing a little male pattern baldness.

That's the kind of pet I think we'll stick to for a while too. Very clever.

Speaking of chia, I just bought a whole bunch of chia seeds eat. Have you ever had them? They are super, super healthy. You can just grind them up and put them into regular food, or use them as an egg substitute (kind of like flax), etc. Maybe you already know this stuff with your home ec background and all, but I think it's awesome. They are full of omega 3's. Anyway, long live the chia! Have fun with your pet.

No, I've never heard of eating chia seeds! How cool. PS--I'm going to try out Bountiful Baskets next week! I heard you're a big fan. Let's hope its not like Kati's strawberry experience.
